I always love a Samuel Adams, and this is a fine ale. I hate their Winter ale though..yuck. This has a good hoppy tasts and a nice bubbly head (in fact it bubbled all over my kitchen floor when I opened it)!

A good ale from a brewer I personally like. I really dont care who doesn’t. Pleasnt bitternss, nice malts. Fruity and a bit spicy even. Good session beer.

Nice beer, lots of malts, I see this is being very similar to the boston lager, except less bitter. I had it served too cold, my rating may go up if it was a warmer temp.

Nice beer, lots of flavour but tended to fall away a bit on the back palate to a chemical feel. The beer had good body and charcter. It’s a shame the beer has stoped being imported because it had a good folowing.

I especially enjoy ales, but this one was very one-dimensional. It also had a funky semi-alcoholic that didn’t fit in. I would actually prefer the lager.

A great ale from Sam Adams, though has a strange aftertaste. Sierra Nevada is much better, but this ale is worth a try.

Very good ale, tasty. But I do not recommend drinking another type of beer before, because then the Sam Adams is gonna taste very perfumy. But great beer to sit back and enjoy when you’re relaxing at home.

One of the better SA brews. Nice carmal appearance and decent white head. The fruity taste of this beer was a pleasant suprise from SA.
